The I.O.Shen Chinese Cleaver is an excellent soft bone chopper. It is designed for chopping through small bones and chicken. This could be the sharpest cleaver in the world and perhaps one of the heaviest. Although it looks like a work of art, this cleaver is meant for the toughest of jobs and it takes them on with ease. Typically this knife has a 30 degree angle for chopping through produce.
Key Feature – Tai Tang Handle:
All the Knives in the I.O.Shen Mastergrade range have used the very latest technology to construct a blade that is not only amazingly sharp but will retain their edge for a long period of time. They have been sharpened to a 15° angle, which allows for wonderful slicing and portion control.
The unique handle design distinguishes I.O.Shen Mastergrade Knives from any other knife. It is an essential factor in achieving balance and stability.
The Tai Tang is not simply an embellishment, it is an integral part of the handle. Injection moulding means that the handle will not fall apart over time (as associated with riveted handles).
The handles are produced from a material called ebonite which is both durable and heat resistant. It is not recommended to wash these knives in a dishwasher.
